Beer in Canada

Canada is responsible for the production of many beers, including Montreal’s Molson Canadian, Chambly’s La Fin du Monde, and Muskoka Cream Ale, which is produced in the Muskoka region in Ontario. In 2018, the Canadian brewing industry generated a total export revenue of about 200 million U.S. dollars. The industry’s import revenue stood at about 770 million U.S. dollars during the same year.

Canadian craft beer

When asked whether they preferred craft beer or beer from larger breweries, over half of Canadian survey respondents stated they did not have a preference in 2019. Roughly 20 percent of consumers did state they preferred craft beer. Microbrews and craft beer were most popular in specific cities around the country: in 2018, approximately half of the beer drinkers in Québec and Ottawa-Gatineau had consumed microbrew or craft beer in May of that year.
